“It is also important for citizens to understand the measures that are being taken to fight this virus. What it requires of us is not just to wait for one day or time we can predict, none of us can say we know the date this will end. The only progress we can control is the one resulting from the measures we have put in place. Things are not only dependent on a set date, but it is also dependent on what happens in that time. I ask you to be patient, every institution is working to confront this virus while also finding ways to return to a normal life. We will do everything we can and leave no solution unexplored. I believe that nothing can stand in our way.” President Kagame officiating the swearing-in of new government officials | Kigali, 1 June 2020
